1977 Mongoose Motomag

Recently I was picking and stumbled across this Bike which after research I found to be a 1977 Mongoose Motomag. It is in pretty good shape as it was stored in a nice shed. I dont know much about it and was wondering if someone could shed a little light on what it might be worth. Any help would be appreciated.

BTW, I started riding BMX about that time. I used to ride a Webco of that same vintage with Ashtabula cranks and forks, Skyway Tuff wheels, a Cooks Brothers goose neck, etc. Had a set of Araya rims for racing and used the Tuff wheels for everyday riding. Traded it in against a Puch moped around 1980 or so. Would love to try an recreate my old bike someday. That thing is worth some money to some dudes in their mid 40's. If you are not going to keep it, put it on Ebay and make some money.
